The sounds of the banging drums on the horizon can only mean one thing, online casino game developer Realtime Gaming has created an online video slot that’s all about traditional Chinese symbolism and colours, of course!

Themes of luck, wealth, and fortune are all around in this game as is evident by the use of gold and reds. The four tiers of winnable progressive jackpots are also an indication of wealth though a not-so-subtle one at that.

Come with us on our journey to the East as we try to bang the drums and boost our luck at the same time. This game has quite a few symbols that you’ll need to learn, mechanics to understand, features to trigger, and options that can be used, and we’ll go through all of them.

Traditionally Themed

If you’ve played a title with a theme such as this one before, you’ve essentially played this one as well. There has been very little done to try and differentiate this online release from the number of others that have this exact same imagery. Luckily, this game is still fun so the lack of originality doesn’t sting too much.

During our play-testing of this title, the music was off by default and when we turned it on to give it a listen, it was so soft we had to boost our volume to max just to somewhat hear it. What we heard when pumping up our speakers didn’t blow us away but it’s audio that fits the theme and serves its purpose. The audio effect, especially on a winning spin, are very generic which is a little unfortunate.

While the title itself is gorgeous, the lack of background animations makes the title slightly less appealing to look at in the long run.

Overall, we have seen slots from Realtime Gaming that have been presented better in the past. While none of what we mentioned above breaks the game in any way, it’s sometimes nice to have one that looks as good as it is to play.

Lucky Charms

There are a whopping eighteen symbols in this title that you’ll have to watch out for while you spin the reels. The icons are broken down into symbols that belong on the pay table and ones that will boost overall gameplay.

We’ll begin with the low-paying images. These are represented by playing card values. Expect to see 9, 10, J, Q, K, and A appearing on the reels fairly frequently. All of these symbols are worth the same value so it doesn’t matter which one forms a winning combination.

Moving on to the high-paying symbols. These are represented by a Headpiece, a Ship, a Frog, a Pair of Koi Fish, and a Dragon. The Dragon is the highest-paying common icon on the pay table so watch out for combinations that form using it.

A Gold and Red symbol is the Wild of this title and will substitute for any other common icon in the game, allowing you to build winning combinations easier or form entirely new ones. The Wild can only appear on reels 2, 3, and 4.

The Mighty Drum is the Scatter for this game. A minimum of three Scatters landing on the grid at the same time will award a payout.

Finally, the Lucky Coins symbol represents the Multiplier Wild. This icon can only appear on reel 3.

Fortune Smiles

Bets that can be placed in this title can range from 0.08 – 8.80 coins per spin.

The grid on which you’ll be playing consists of 5 reels and 3 rows with a total of 243 ways to win.

As usual with Realtime Gaming releases, the RTP rate isn’t known. What we do know is that the volatility is low.

Drumming To The Beat

By hitting 3 Scatters on the grid, from left to right, during a single spin, you’ll be awarded 12 bonus spins. During the bonus feature round, the low-paying symbols don’t make an appearance. Bonus spins can be re-triggered.

Should the Jackpot Pick Feature trigger, 12 gold coins will appear on the grid. Clicking on a coin will reveal one of the 4 gods that represent a different jackpot tier. The first 3 identical gods that are revealed will award their respective jackpot, either the Mini, Minor, Major, or Grand jackpot.

Four of the five high-paying symbols have golden variants that can be toggled on or off by using the panel on the right-hand side of the grid. The more golden symbols in play, the more jackpots will be in play along with other perks. Activating golden symbols will also increase your current bet level.

Play The Mighty Drums

If this title is resonating with you in any way, we suggest that you give it a go using a fun account first before spending any money on it. If, after that, you’d like to give it a go for real, keep an eye out for it the next time you log into your favourite online casino.
